So it didn’t happen in a manner I’d hoped…with us voting her in. Instead Rudd was ousted by his own party members who wanted Julia Gillard instead.
But it does mean that we get a chance to vote for her as our leader in the coming elections, either at the end of this year or next year. And I for one am excited.
Julia Gillard is definitely going to be a challenge for right-wing Tony Abbott. She is a woman who speaks her mind, is intelligent and articulate. She is a great role model for young women out there. Intelligent. Strong. Independent. Confident.
Let’s see where she takes our country.
Go Gillard! [Not that I’m biased or anything…]
Until next time,
